Odd Shots and Macro Monday are here
Our host for this week is Pamela at "The Dust will wait"
She asks : Show me in pictures or tell me in words what defines the place where you live.
For me it is really a very easy Fun Monday as I live in Waterloo, Belgium (history here in Wikipedia) "on" the famous battle field of Napoleon and Wellington which is known of course all over the world.
At the very beginning of my blog, I made this collage, just to show where I live. It pretty much resumes everything.
The famous lion and the Panorama wherein the battle is painted in 3 D.
The lion hill with always a lot of tourists around, especially in spring and summer, but also the whole year around.
In June a reconstitution of the battle takes place with soldiers from the Netherlands, Germany, Scotland and England. It's nice to see the scottish soldiers doing their shopping in Waterloo center in their kilts.
The church of Waterloo hasn't changed since it was used as sickbay for the wounded soldiers of the battle in 1815
We have lots of restaurants in historical buildings
and a new capitol
a place for expositions is located in the parc
I had to use old pictures because the whole week it was raining and the weather awful. The picture above shows the main street
and this one is the Wellington museum, which I shot out of my car for obvious reasons.
